Allofoz asked below how the government would run if we did not raise taxes?
Here's a simple quiz for liberals...when your local retail store, car dealer, whatever wants to increase sales (and increase revenue) do they RAISE their prices to get more cash from every sale, or CUT prices to make less on each sale while increasing sales?
The world awaits your admission that cutting prices affects behavior. Cutting taxes would affect behavior...and that is why when taxes are cut, more revenue accrues to the treasury.
I know that facts are difficult for liberals, but surely you can grasp the concept of a retail store sale?
